Imagine feeling rested, relaxed and ready to sleep…
Do you dread bedtime? Instead of being a time to relax and unwind – is it stressing you out and leaving you feeling wrung out and tired? If so I can relate. I’ve been there as have nearly 30% of the population at some point in their life and as we all know it can be terribly frustrating not to mention exhausting. Fortunately, I have some good news for you – integrated mind therapy is great way to treat insomnia.

Insomnia may be experienced in a number of ways. Some people find it difficult to get to sleep in the first place (primary insomnia). Other people wake up a number of times in the night and find it difficult to get back to sleep (middle insomnia). And others wake up very early and are not able to get back to sleep at all (terminal insomnia).
Whichever you suffer from, any kind of sleep problemcan be extremely debilitating, leaving you feeling tired, anxious and emotionally unstable the next day. This is turn can impair your ability to function properly at work and even affect your relationships– so you have done the right thing seeking help. It might be manageable for a day or two but any longer and it can be detrimental to your physical health and mental well-being. It’s no coincidence that sleep deprivation has been used as a torture device by Special Forces worldwide for decades to get what they wanted from people.
The primary causes of insomnia include: psychological factors such as stress, anxiety and depression; physical factors such as pain, hormone changes or any number of medical conditions and temporary factors such as the over use of caffeine or other stimulants. A major change in someone’s environment or a stressful event can also trigger insomnia. This is because they have learnt to associate the sleeping environment with being alert.
Irrespective of the cause, the most common solution seems to be the use of medication. But whilst sleeping pills can have a positive impact, they do not deal with the root causes of insomnia and can often lead to dependence, which in of itself can lead to other associated problems. Our bodies already have the natural mechanisms to allow us to sleep naturally and well – but occasionally these natural mechanisms need a little help operating properly.
Don’t be afraid to take the first step. Remember that facing your fear and making a change is the beginning of the path to wisdom and we are here to give you a helping hand.
